Why Both Assessments Are Necessary
Both formative and summative assessments can be implemented to create a successful classroom environment in many ways. Formative assessments should be done all the time. However, I only do one summative assessment once the standard has been completely covered and based on my formative assessments my students have comprehended the information. Formative assessments help teachers understand what students need improvement in. These assessments help teachers get a better understanding of what exactly they need to focus on to ensure success with a summative assessment. They both are very important as you would never want to teach a lesson and just assume all your students got it and only do a summative assessment. During teaching and after, formative assessments gives teachers what they need to move forward.
